FAITH AND REASON. Two travelers started on a tour With trust and knowledge laden; One was a man with mighty brain. And one a gentle maiden. They joined their hands and vowed to be Companions for a season. The gentle maiden's name was Faith, TLe mighty man's was Reason. Ee sought all knowledge from this world. And every world a-near it; All matter and all mind were his. Bat hers was only spirit. If any stars were missed from heaven. Ills telescope could find them; Bui while he only found the stars She found the God behind them. lie sought for truth above, below. All hidden things revealing; She only sought it womanwise. And found it in her feeling. , He said, "This earth's a rolling ball," And so doth science prove it. lie but discovered that it moves. She found the strings that move it. He reads with geologic eye The record of the ages; Unfolding strata, he translates Earth's wonder written pages. He digs around a mountain base And measures with a plummet; She leaps it with a single bound And stands upon the summit. He brings to light the secret force In nature's labyrinth lurking And binds it to his onward car To do his mighty working, lie sends his message o'er the earth And down where sea gems glisten; She sendeth hers to God himself. Who bends his ear to listen. All things in science, beauty, art. In common they inherit; But he has only clasped the form. While she has clasped the spirit. lie tries from earth to forge a key To ope the gate of heaven! That key is in the maiden's heart. And back its bolts are driven. They parti Without her all is dark. His knowledge vain and hollow. For Faith has entered In Arith God. Where Reason may net follow. -Elizabeth York Caso in Homo and Country. The First American Bible. In 16G3 the first Bible printed in Amer ica was published in Cambridge. It was unlawful to print an English version of the Scriptures, that right being a mo nopoly enjoyed, by privilege and patent in England. The one printed in Massa chusetts was Eliot's famous "Indian Bi ble," and although 1,500 copies were struck off they are qui to rare, and "sealed books," a3 the tongue in which they aro written is literally a "dead lan guage," the tribo and all who had a knowledge of the dialect being long ex tinct. Eliot's work is iruique, being at onca a monument to Ms piety, perseverance and learning. Its literary successor was New man's "Concordance of the Scriptures." This was compiled by the light of pine knot3 in a log cabin in one of the frontier settlements of Massachusetts. It was the first of its kind, and for more than a century was admitted to be the most perfect, holding its place in public es teem until superseded by Cruden's, which it suggested. Philadelphia Record. Meaning of the Word "Either." The legal meaning of the word "either" has been gravely argued in an English court of record. A certain testator had left property, the disposition of which wa3 affected by the "death of either" of two persons. One lawyer insisted that either" meant both, and in support of his view3 he quoted Richardson, Web ster, Chaucer, Dryden, Southey, the story of the crucifixion and a passage from Eevelation. The judge suggested that there was a song in "The Beggar's Opera" which took another view, "How happy I could be with either, were t'other dear charmer away." In pronouncing judgment the court ruled that "either" meant one of two, and did not mean both. He said that it might have that meaning occasionally in poetry, but never in an English court of record. Exchange. An Unexplorable French Pit. The wonderful pit of Creus de Souci in France i3 situated in a sheet of recent basalt on the south side of tho Puy de Montchal. The opening is 82 feet in di ameter and S3 feet deep, but at that depth a hole about 10 feet wide commu nicates with a hollow 70 feet deep, at the bottom of which is a stagnant pool overladen with carbonic acid, which, for bids access to the water surface. The interior is a vast hollow, apparently formed in the basalt when Eemifluid, by an explosion of volcanic gas. The tem perature falls from 54 degrees Fahren heit in tho open air to 31 degrees near the water. Pittsburg Dispatch. Odd KcUoe. In a cave in the Pantheon, the guide, by striking the flaps of his coat, makes a noise equal to that produced by firing a 12-pound cannon. In the cave of Smel lin, near Viborg, Finland, a stone thrown down a certain abyss makes a reverber ating echo which sounds like the dying waii of some wild animal. Exchange. Smuggling; Mushrooms by Mall. An odd kind of smuggling i3 the send ing of mushrooms by mail from Italy. They are of a peculiar kind, dried and are much relished by natives of that country in the United States. They come in small bags and are easily distin guished by smell. Cor. Boston Tran script. The soil of the state of Colorado in the irrigable parts 13 largely of disintegrated rock which is a perfect powder, highly susceptible to any vegetation it comes in contact with when heat and moisture are sufficient to insure the absortion of fertilizers. Shellfish sometimes cause an itching skin eruption. Nausea, vomiting and giddiness are sometimes tho indications that they disagree with those who par take of them. Burton, when out of spirits, would go "to the Thames, sit on the steps leading to the water and find pleasure in listening to the stories of the bargemen. Kites rise against, not with, tho wind. No man ever worked bis passage any where in a dead calm. John Neal. It is said the city of Pittsburg now stands on ground once given in exchange for a violin.
